|Looking at the location of Yabucoa on a map:|
It's pretty isolated. I could see the roads easily being blocked. If cell service were down there, they wouldn't be able to contact anyone until they could physically get out. Up the road from there was
Josh Morgerman, who got to San Juan as you mentioned.
I'm sure no communications means cell service or landline. I would assume his phone would have been charged. I'm surprised Josh Morgerman got out so fast. Yabucoa might not seem far from Humacao and Palmas Del Mar, 11 to 12 miles to either, but there could be a lot of power lines in the way along the road. I was just taking a look at satellite and Google Street View of the area for what is available and the roads don't look like they would easily be blocked by trees, so I would guess more issues with power lines maybe.
I don't see any post storm flights yet for Maria:
